Comparison of the areas of the full Moon and the region of sky mapped in the COSMOS survey. The survey encompasses an area of the sky nine times that of the full Moon. It was carried out by an international team of 70 astronomers led by Nick Scoville of Caltech. The exceptional image depth and resolution of COSMOS has made it possible to cover the large areas spanned by the dark matter structures and to obtain details of its distribution.
